Anxiously ENGAGED

I'm ENGAGED! I was trying to come up with some witty and fun way of announcing it...but...I'm too excited to be creative! Last night I was expecting just another night out with my boy, he had had a long day and had asked we go out for a detox when he got done with his study group. He came, he picked me up and took me to Dairy Queen and bought me a Strawberry Cheesecake Blizzard, and then drove me up to our "seceret spot". You see, when we were first dating we would go out on "Detox Sessions". Where we would just vent and re-group and relax and just escape all the crap that was going on in our lives. It's just what we do. So I wasn't thinking ANYTHING of it when he drove me up there. We were having a nice little conversation about this, that and the other- Nothing really life altering- and then we started talking about our first detox session and how everything just snow balled from there. We were sitting in his car, reminicing about how great it's been getting to know one another and all the drama that encircled our courtship and then he turned to me and said "You are my favorite person ever, and I love you more than anything, and I want you to have this." He handed me the box and then said "And I want you to marry me." :D

I was completely caught off gaurd! I had NO clue! The man is AMAZING with surprises, and this one took the cake. He had a dozen roses for me and everything and it was...perfect. He's perfect. For me he is. Even with all his imperfections...which only make him more loveable. He's amazing to me! I've never in my life felt more loved and adorned and completely blessed.

He picked out the ring himself and he did a GOOD job!

I'm Getting MARRIED to the most incredible man I've ever met!!!! November 19th in the Bountiful Temple! And I couldn't be more excited about it! I choose my love and I love my choice!


  1. Yay! Yay! Yay! :) Congratulations! I love that you told the story in detail. It's a good one. Way to go, lover-boy! I'm so happy for you. Derek will be, too, when I make him check this when he gets home. Hooray for finding your perfect match! :)

  2. Oh I'm so excited for you. Isn't it so fun when the boy picks out the ring all by himself. Scotty did that and I LOVED it. Your ring is absoluately GORGEOUS! Way to go Chad! Can't wait to see it in person!

  3. Congrats my dear. I love you. More than's true.

  4. I can't tell you how happy I am for you. Words can't express. I knew the perfect guy for you was out there- but it took him long enough! He was worth the wait! I love your story- it's fun to be surprised. Your ring is beautiful!! I'll be there in November! Love you Kandace!!
